Approx 18kms, starting with a steepish climb up through woods to Tetin - clifftop viewpoints over the Berounka river, then back through the woods and paved tracks to Karlstejn train station.
Bring food & drink (picnic lunch at viewpoint, weather permitting), and wear suitable boots for muddy paths.
From Wikipedia: Historically, Tetín is one of the oldest villages in the Czech Republic. The place was already inhabited during the paleolithic period. Archaeologists found that the beginnings of the village date back to the 10th century,

By Protected content , Tetín castle was owned by Štěpán of Tetín, who later sold it to Emperor Karel IV. The latter then joined the Tetín estate to Karlštejn.

Thanks to Ivan and Guy for tips of the route to Tetin - but we'll be giving the bat-infested mines a miss .... another time, maybe ;)
